Also known as Leon Dormido, Kicker Rock is a massive rock formation that just from the ocean just off the island of San Cristobal. The rock is actually two – a large, long section and a dagger shaped section separated by a narrow channel. Catch a boat out there and you can snorkel or scuba dive through the channel, seeing scores of Galapagos sharks, sea turtles and abundant fish. There are strong currents sometimes, so just be careful.

The remains of an extinct lava tube, Kicker Rock is one of those iconic Galapagos landscapes that become emblazoned on your subconscious following a voyage to these islands. This place is magnificent if not a bit eerie. Great for bird watching and diving, it's a big part of many tour itineraries. But whether you get in the water or not, it's well worth the trip to see.
